Get rid of the house and sell the land. Bulldozing the broken-down mansion billionaire Stryker Alexander West inherited solves an annoying problem. Busy launching a new venture, he doesn't have time to waste on sentiment. Taking down the historic building should be a slam-dunk. But Stryker comes up against a stone wall in the form of Landmark chair, Jess Lennox.
Supporting her brother and juggling a hard life, Jess refuses to approve a permit to demolish the old house. No way will she let arrogant, wealthy Mr. West destroy her dream. Unwilling to accept defeat, Stryker's confident he can prevail. He insists staying in town is about winning and has nothing to do with heat from a determined blonde.
Too stubborn to budge, Jess holds fast, struggling against her attraction to her worst enemy. Will the winner of the battle lose at love?
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was such a wonderful story. I cried at some parts of this beautiful story. The story doesn't have unnecessary drama to it but it is filled with everyday type of drama. The pathway to a HEA for Stryker and Jess was just filled with strife. These two seemed so opposite of each other but oh so similar in others.
The book contained my favorite dual POV and I adored reading how the mighty Stryker worked through getting around Jess to try and sale the albatross of a run-down mansion. The workings of his mind will give you a chuckle or two. He was priceless in trying to figure Jess out and falling for her instead.
There were some steamy scenes but nothing that would be out of the ordinary when two people meet and fall in love. These scene were not racy by any means. There is a story here that is a joy to read.
I love this story
Jess Lennox is one of my favorite characters along with Stryker West. I liked how the story unfolds. They can't stand each other. He is saucy and she is down home. Jess has spunk. I like that in a heroine. Stryker is sexy. Spunky heroine meets sexy billionaire. Wonder what will happen?
